Industry suppliers team up with INK+BEYOND 2014

Numerous organizations from across North America are teaming up with Canada’s national newspaper conference to make a strong statement about the publishing industry.

This year’s INK+BEYOND conference and trade show will take place in Charlottetown, PEI on May 28-30. As Canada’s largest annual gathering of newspaper executives, this two-day event is the perfect opportunity for industry partners and industry suppliers to build brand awareness and connect one-on-one with publishers, editors and decision-makers from newspapers in every province.

CJF J-talk: Does The Press Gallery Matter?

Members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery recently voted unanimously to assert their right to scrum Prime Minister Stephen Harper so they could "fulfill our functions as journalists in a democratic society." The vote was a reaction to restrictions on access to the PM and his ministers—and a revealing glimpse of how the ground has shifted on Ottawa political reporters.

The regular prime ministerial press conference is a thing of the past. Senior bureaucrats hesitate to brief journalists. The PM and ministers take their message on the road or send it out on weekly video clips. Opposition MPs use the same techniques.

Is the influence of political reporters on the wane in the face of shrinking resources, wide use of social media, and the distance Ottawa puts between government and reporters? On Wednesday, April 9, the Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) will host a unique panel discussion in Ottawa to evaluate how national media coverage of the government is changing.

The Globe shares its analytics success story at INK+BEYOND

The Globe and Mail is one of the first media organizations to use MOAT Analytics, a new software suite designed to measure, track and refine online ad and sponsorship campaigns. 

As Canadian brand advertisers demand increasingly refined levels of accountability in their media spend, this software is about moving beyond the click and helping brand marketers and premium publishers better understand how consumers pay attention.

Cynthia Young, The Globe and Mail's director of digital advertising products and innovation, will speak at the upcoming INK+BEYOND conference in Charlottetown, PEI to share her insights on how the paper is using this cutting-edge service to obtain valuable real-time measurement data and gain a better understanding of their online audience attention metrics.

Why the death of the homepage is good for digital journalism

Welcome to the social age of news, where every page is a homepage, every beat is a site and every journalist is a brand. Join the Boston Globe's David Skok for this year's Atkinson lecture as he argues why we've entered a new gilded age in journalism and what traditional news organizations can do to grow new audiences online.

The free lecture will take place on Monday, March 24 at Ryerson University in Toronto.
